If you downloaded the ALP-45DP mod from the link above PRIOR TO 10:40 AM on 10/23/15, then you MUST redownload it to receive the bug fix that corrects the horn/bell sounds not playing on the Comet V. That is all.

TS2016: Metro-North GE P32AC-DM Physics Mod
« Reply #20 on: November 13, 2015, 01:46:46 pm »


This is the Metro-North P32AC-DM & Shoreliner Cab Car Comprehensive Mod Pack V1.0 for TS2016

In order to utilize this freeware sound & physics upgrade, you must have purchased the "Metro-North P32 AC-DM 'Genesis' Loco Add-On" pack available at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/258655/

This is a freeware pack; in no way is it to be used for commercial purposes. You are free, however to use the sound & physics enhancements found in this pack for personal use if you so choose.

THIS IS BOTH A SOUND AND PHYSICS UPGRADE PACK.

The main purpose of this pack is to make use of the proper horn and bell sound files that were somehow overlooked by DTG in the beta test process, introduce authentic Leslie RS2M horn sounds (exterior and cab versions) and authentic bell sounds (exterior and cab versions). This pack also replaces the door sounds and adds brake release sounds.

From a physics perspective, this pack introduces new weight and tractive effort values to give a more realistic operating feel.

Included is the signature JohnS brake fix. Additionally, the number of throttle notches on the Shoreliner Cab Car have been fixed.

Finally, this pack gives the user the ability to switch between GE P32AC-DM physics and MPI HSP46 physics. Follow the instructions provided below to switch between.

Technical specifications:

1. GE P32AC-DM (GE 7FDL-12; 3300 GHP; no HEP)
 a. Starting tractive effort of 62,000 lbs (275.8 kN) up to 14 mph
 b. Continuous TE of 45,051.7 lbs (200.4 kN) @ 25 mph
 c. Dynamic Brake effort of 34,500 lbs (153.423 kN) @ 35 mph to 5 mph; linear fade from max brake effort @ 5 mph to 0 lbs @ 2 mph; resistor grid rating of 3,216 hp (2,400 kW)
 d. Wheel horsepower of 3,000 hp (2,239 kW) @ 25 mph; assuming 0 kW HEP load
 e. Weight of 124.5 metric tons (274,472.7 lbs)
 f. Max traction amps = 620 (62,000 lbs)s
 g. Max braking amps = 345 (34,500 lbs)
 h. Engine RPM range = 315 - 900
 i. RPM change rate (rpm/second) = 25
 j. Fuel consumption range (gph)= 29 - 160
 k. Maximum speed of 110 mph

2. MPI HSP46 (GE GEVO-12; 4700 GHP; no HEP)
 a. Starting tractive effort of 65,000 lbs (289.1344 kN) up to 24.832 mph
 b. Continuous TE of 20,176 lbs (89.747 kN) @ 80 mph
 c. Dynamic Brake effort of 35,209 lbs (156.619 kN) @ 50 mph to 5 mph; linear fade from max brake effort @ 5 mph to 0 lbs @ 2 mph; resistor grid rating of 4,690 hp (3,500 kW)
 d. Wheel horsepower of 4,300 hp (2,239 kW) @ 24.832 mph; assuming 0 kW HEP load
 e. Weight of 131.543 metric tons (290,000 lbs)
 f. Max traction amps = 650 (65,000 lbs)
 g. Max braking amps = 352 (35,209 lbs)
 h. Engine RPM range = 315 - 900
 i. RPM change rate (rpm/second) = 25
 j. Fuel consumption range (gph)= 35 - 210
 k. Maximum speed of 110 mph


IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

1. Locate P32Pack01 (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\P32Pack01)
2. Open Railworks_Metro-North_P32AC-DM_and_Shoreliner_Cab_Car_Comprehensive_Mod_Pack.rar
3. Drag the file folders from the .rar in step 2 into the directory you opened in step 1.
4. The installation should be complete. Run TS2016 to check.
5. If installation is botched or does not work, to back up to original files, delete the folder from step 3. Then proceed to contact me and let me know so I can fix the issue.

User Manual:
Upon installation, the pack defaults to using the GE P32AC-DM (3300 GHP) physics. In order to switch physics, follow the steps below:

1. Open the following directories:
   a. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\P32Pack01\RailVehicles\Diesel\P32DC\Simulation"
   b. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\P32Pack01\RailVehicles\Diesel\P32DC\Engine"
2. In each of those directories, you will see three folders (one for each set of locomotive physics):
   a. "P32AC-DM (3300 GHP)"
   b. "HSP46 (4700 GHP)"
3. Once you choose which set of physics to use, open the respective physics folder in all three directories from step 1.
4. Copy (CTRL + C) all files you find in the opened folder located in directory 1a.
5. Proceed back to directory 1a and paste (CTRL + V) the copied files into the directory; overwrite when prompted.
6. Copy (CTRL + C) all files you find in the opened folder located in directory 1b.
7. Proceed back to directory 1b and paste (CTRL + V) the copied files into the directory; overwrite when prompted.
8. If the previous 7 steps were completed properly, the physics swap should be successful; run TS2016 to check.

Thank you for downloading and installing.
Enjoy =)

This is the Chicago & Southwest Productions Metra EMD F40PH-3 Locomotive & Nippon Sharyo Gallery Cab Car Comprehensive Modification pack version 2.0

In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the "The Racetrack: Aurora - Chicago Route Add-On" pack available at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/258648/

This is a freeware pack; in no way is it to be used for commercial purposes. You are free, however to further modify the physics and sound enhancements found in this pack for personal use if you so choose.

This is BOTH sound mod and physics mod pack.

The purpose of this pack is to adjust the physics performance of the EMD F40PH-3 locomotive and the associated Gallery Cab Car.

This pack also replaces the mediocre stock bell sounds with authentic bell sounds (exterior and interior versions) for both the cab car and the locomotive.

This pack also replaces the door sounds (audible only while in the cab car at the moment). Sounds sourced to Tyler Johnston.

Sound NOTE: The interior bell sound on the locomotive is very soft, so if it is barely audible, that's the way it's supposed to be. Also, once again, you will only hear the door chime if you are operating from the cab car. You will NOT hear it if you are operating from the locomotive.

SIDE NOTE: To obtain Metra logo and decals for rolling stock, download this pack: http://railworksamerica.com/index.php/download-library/accessories?view=document&id=1858:metra-signage-logos&catid=24:accessories (http://www.facebook.com/groups/720469151375805/files/)

List of general changes for v2.0 release (from the v1.0 release):
1. Incorporated the JohnS brake fix. Brake pipe pressure set back to 90 PSI and brakes are now graduated release.
2. Removed HEP physics option
3. Increased traction motor load time from 5 seconds to 25 seconds
4. Packaged the sound mod into v2.0 release

NOTE: The F40PH-3 locomotive comes default with a neat HEP mode toggle ability, this only affects engine RPM; tractive power is not affected.

Technical specifications:

1. EMD F40PH-2 (EMD 645; 3200 THP; no HEP)
   a. Starting tractive effort of 65,000 lbs (289.1344 kN)
   b. Continuous tractive effort of 38,240 lbs (170.1 kN) @ 16.31 mph
   c. Dynamic Brake effort of 35,000 lbs (177.93 kN) @ 55 mph; extended range sawtooth curve between 55 mph and 36 mph. Fade to 0 lbs @ 0.5 mph (not in use)
   d. Wheel horsepower of 3,000 hp (2,239 kW) @ 30 mph
   e. Maximum speed of 103 mph
    f. Engine RPM range = 410 - 900
   g. RPM change rate (rpm/second) = 20
    h. Fuel consumption range (gph)= 4 - 155
   i. Weight = 260,142.8 lbs (118 metric tons)
   j. Fuel capacity = 1500 gallons
   k. Max traction amps = 1785
   l. Max brake amps = 700 (not in use)


IMPORTANT; Install Instructions:

1. Locate BNSFChicago (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\Barnez\BNSFChicago)
2. Open TS2016_Metra_EMD_F40PH_&_Gallery_Cab_Car_Comprehensive_Mod_Pack.7z
3. Drag the file folders from the .rar in step 2 into the directory you opened in step 1.
4. The installation should be complete. Run TS2016 to check.
5. If installation is botched or does not work, to back up to original files, delete the folder from step 3.

NOTE: When trying to run a career scenario after installing any physics mod, you will have to bypass the "track.bin" error message that pops up by pressing "F2", then hitting save. The scenario will then be playable.

Thank you for downloading and installing.
Enjoy =)

TS2016: Acela & HHP-8 Brake Mod
« Reply #26 on: December 01, 2015, 09:47:15 pm »

This is the update to both the HHP-8 and Acela physics mods for TS2016 (12/1/15). Main change is that the Signature JohnS brake fix has been applied to both trains / locomotives. Players may now select any position between minimum reduction and suppression on the auto brake handle among other minor changes. For more information, be sure to read the readme text files that are provided with each mod. Enjoy =)

Amazing job! Just one thing: I subscribed to the item and it is not showing in my directory. I really want to play this, but it doesn't work.
